I'm afraid not; Q2 is all anyone has heard. From what I've been told, however - from quite a few sources - the 787 is actually the favourite.

Keep an eye out on the Irish aviation threads; we won't keep quiet about it!

Interestingly, it has also been reported that 2-3 A330s, for delivery next year, which DM previously said might be available, may not now be available. I suspect that these aircraft were intended by Airbus as part of a sweetener to get Aer Lingus on board with the 350. However, if it doesn't, they probably won't be available and Airbus is having very little problem in shifting A330s right now.

Finally, if, as predicted, EK orders the A350, that's going to put first available delivery dates, already likely to be in 2014, well down the road for any new customers and that's bound to be a consideration.

Now hang on, forum roumers are not sources!

Its either A330s & 787s or A330s & A350s. We cant count out 767s, 777s & A340s. I would not be surprised is Aer Lingus do things 'Finnish* style but without the A340s. A few fresh A330-300s on the cheap would go down well in EI HQ. We will probably find out @ paris.

*Always remember - to finish first, first you must be finnish!
